Daily Trust - - CITY NEWS -

Two women were on Wed­nes­day stripped naked by a mob for al­legedly steal­ing N100,000 from a wine shop at Dut­sen Al­haji mar­ket, Bwari Area Coun­cil of the Fed­eral Cap­i­tal Ter­ri­tory (FCT).

City News learnt that the women had gone to the mar­ket that fate­ful day and en­tered the shop un­der the pre­text of buy­ing some items.

A source said one of the women ap­proached the shop owner and was ne­go­ti­at­ing the price of one of the wine bot­tles when her ac­com­plice dipped her hand into the drawer and re­moved N100,000.

“She was about to walk away with the money when the shop owner who had seen her steal the money raised alarm which at­tracted other traders,” the source added.

Ac­cord­ing to the source, the traders sud­denly pounced on two of them, stripped them naked, and were about to lynch them when they were res­cued by the po­lice who stormed the scene of the in­ci­dent fol­low­ing an alert.

City News fur­ther gath­ered that their naked­ness was im­me­di­ately cov­ered by the po­lice who pro­vided them with clothes be­fore they were whisked away to the sta­tion.

When con­tacted, the Dutse Di­vi­sional Po­lice Of­fi­cer, SP Ha­jiya Aisha Yusuf, con­firmed the ar­rest, say­ing the sus­pects have been charged to court.
